Here is exactly how the problem reads:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

53. Find an equation of the tangent line to the graph of F at the indicated point.

y = x^4 - 3x^2 + 2 (1,0)

I'll be honest. I do not understand how to do these type problems. I've been reading this section of the book over and over to no avail. For some reason, I still cannot grasp how to do this sort of problem. So I'm posting this question here hoping that someone can ignite a lightbulb in my head so I can figure this kind of problem out.

Any help on getting started isgreatlyappreciated.
